Who can believe it is less than 4 weeks till Christmas. What a year. So as the holiday season warms up here are the December party pages from Town & Country to remind everyone how much fun they had a year ago at Unicef and the Botanical Gardens.

Apollo Circle Gala

Last week was the glamorous Apollo Circle Benefit Gala at the Met. Carolina Herrera sponsored the event and looked beautiful in Purple. Bronson Van Wyck looked really wicked in his long dashing cape. It is always amazing to visit the museum after hours. I love being able to walk through the galleries with the evening glow. It makes me feel like I am in a children's book.

Hannah and Lee get hitched

Last Saturday afternoon the Bowery Hotel was jumping on every floor. Hannah was getting ready in 702 which if you don't know has an amazing terrace with a big hot tub. Upstairs on the 14th floor Lee and the guys were drinking Champagne and waiting for the big moment when Hannah would be ready to see Lee for the first time. On the second floor the amazingly talented Sofia Crokos from Sofia Crokos Events was overseeing the transformation of the spaces from bar to wedding ceremony in one room and Italian Villa inspired dinning room in the other. The rooms were bathed in candle light and fall leaves played an important role in creating the warm and cosy atmosphere.

Roger Waters performs

The lucky crowd at the Waldorf ballroom who had gathered for the Rita Hayworth Gala to benefit Alzheimer's research was treated to a phenomenal performance by Roger Waters. After he sang he donated his guitar for the silent auction.
I had to smile when I found myself beside him and Brooke Shields after he came off stage. He waged his finger at her and asked how she had grown so tall. Her reply was 6 inch heels! At that they turned and asked me to snap a photo. First Roger bent his knees to show how tall Brooke was and then stood on tip toes. They were both all giggles.

LDF Gala

Last week I got to photograph the LDF awards at the Hilton. After a private cocktail reception in the Penthouse I went down stairs to a room that was a buzz. Ursula M. Burns , Jamie Dimon and Vernon Jordan were the Honorees of the night and were presented their awards by Kenneth Chenault, Richard Parsons and Frank Thomas.
The beautiful Deborah Roberts was the Master of Ceremony and kept the audience up to date with the baseball scores. To see more photos you can click here Julie Skarratt Photography and click on View Your Event
